COSTA MESA, CA – The legendary Mariinsky Ballet and Orchestra (formerly the Kirov Ballet and Orchestra) return to Segerstrom Center for the Arts October 2 – 7 in an exclusive Southern California engagement. For their eighth visit to the Center, the Company will dance its sumptuous and traditional production of Swan Lake, one of Tchaikovsky’s most beloved and lyrical ballets. Among the most revered ballet companies in the world and with more than 250 years of history, the Mariinsky Ballet of St. Petersburg, Russia has presented some of the greatest dancers and choreographers.
The London Evening Standard said, “Sublime is not a word you can overuse to describe the lake side scene in Swan Lake. Most ballet companies do it pretty well, but the Mariinsky elevates it to another realm, with row upon row of perfectly even, perfectly aligned dancers, each a downy-soft swan maiden, and all moving in hypnotic harmony.”
Tickets to the Mariinsky Ballet and Orchestra are currently available through subscriptions to the Center’s 2012-13 International Dance Season. Single tickets, which start at 0, will go on sale Sunday, August 26 at 10 a.m. PST. Tickets will be available online at SCFTA.org, at the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling (714) 556-2787. For inquiries about group ticket discounts for 10 or more, call the Group Services office at (714) 755-0236. The TTY number is (714) 556-2746. Free Preview Talks will be conducted by Elizabeth Kaye one hour prior to each performance. The Friday, October 5th Preview Talk will be sign language interpreted. Artists and program are subject to change.
Originally known as the Imperial Russian Ballet, the Company beginnings date back to the 1740s, following the establishment of the first Russian dance school (now the Vaganova Ballet Academy) in 1738. The renaissance of Russian ballet, by and large, is owed to the creative mastermind of France’s Marius Petipa and the Mariinsky troupe coming together during the later part of the 19th century. The results of this collaboration include La BayadeIre, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake (with Lev Ivanov) and Raymonda, garnering the Mariinsky Ballet with the highest esteem in classical ballet.

Today, the Mariinsky Ballet carefully guards its legacy and the Company’s renditions of Swan Lake, Giselle and Paquita remain unrivalled. The premiere of Swan Lake took place in 1895 and dancing the leading role became a turning point in the biographies of many famous Russian ballerinas, including Marina Semenova, Galina Ulanova, Natalia Makarova, Alla Osipenko and Galina Mezentseva. Now this role is danced by today’s generation of dancers, who infuse Swan Lake with a new life.

The 2012-2013 International Dance Series also includes Trey McIntyre Project, Hamburg Ballet and Eifman Ballet of St. Petersburg. Subscribers to the Dance Series can enjoy new services this season, including specially priced season packages for students and seniors as well as the launch of Join the Corp ticket packages for Saturday matinees. This new option allows patrons to purchase a single ticket for each performance and the Center will seat ‘soloists’ with others who share the same passion for dance.
The Center's International Dance Series is made possible by: Audrey Steele Burnand Endowed Fund for International Dance and The Segerstrom Foundation Endowment for Great Performances. The Center applauds Media Sponsor Classical KUSC 91.5FM. Segerstrom Center also applauds Acura, the Official Automotive Sponsor of the Center.
